Mark your calendar! Mother’s Day is just around the corner (May 13 to be exact!). If you’re wondering what to get your mom, your daughter, a special aunt, or a good friend, we’ve got a few ideas. Check out these seven ideas to show all the moms in your life how special they are on Mother’s Day and every day!
Plan a ‘Her’ Day
What do moms want to do on their special day? Anything they please, of course. Make a list of her favorite things and then spend the day with her, all the while checking each box. For example, you might schedule mani/pedi appointments, cook her favorite dinner, or go for a walk with her on a trail she loves.
Take the Party Outdoors
Set up an al fresco brunch for you, your mom, your daughter, and any other friends and family you want to celebrate. Decorate your table with finds from the garden, like these mini wire chair pots, which also make great take-home favors for your guests.
Pamper the Queen
Don’t ask Mom to lift a finger on her special day—unless it’s to ring her wine glass bell or press the button for more champagne. Indulge her in relaxation by suggesting she grab a good book and head to the pool or curl up in her favorite chair with a beloved romantic comedy—all the while you can refill her glass.
Make a Get Away
Don’t limit Mother’s Day to 24 hours; pack a suitcase and make a weekend of it. Think of a destination your loved one has always dreamt of seeing or revisit a beloved city. Either way, it’s the time you spend together that you’ll both treasure the most.
Share a Secret
Can you keep a secret? Neither can we, but these bracelets can! Remind your daughter or a favorite teacher to follow her dreams or (at the very least) put on some lipstick with wrist-wear that spells out the message in Morse code.
Have a Laugh on You
Whether physically speaking or figuratively, chances are you’re turning into to your mother (perhaps, this pillow says it best). Look at old photos, yearbooks, and home movies to share a laugh at the similarities and determine just how much you look and act like your mom.
Give a Meaningful Token
After all the festivities and fun, make sure you show mom how special she is with a gift from the heart. These pewter bracelets feature etched flowers that represent each of the twelve months. Choose your birth month as a special surprise for mom.
